Amanda Cook Concert – Romancero Gitano (Gipsy Ballads)
We are very much looking forward to our collaboration with local and international classical guitarist Amanda Cook for our concert on Saturday 18 November in St Peter’s Church, High Cross. We shall be performing Castelnuovo-Tedesco’s Romancero Gitano, Pachelbel’s Canon Rosa Mystica and debuting David Roe’s El Mar de los Sargazos. Tickets can now be purchased either at One Tree Books in Lavant Street, or via our website and TicketSource, and cost £15 for adults and £5 for under 18s. We hope to see many of you there for what we hope will be a lovely evening of music and singing.
We were delighted to be asked to sing recently at the Licensing Service of the Revd Dr Susie Collingridge as Priest-in-Charge of Steep and Froxfield with Privett. Susie has been a member of the Choir in the Alto section for several years, so it was a privilege and honour to be invited to sing for one of our own at her Licensing Service. Thank you!
Did you know that we are also asked to sing at local weddings or funerals? Whenever possible we love to participate in these special events, diaries permitting of course. We charge a fee to cover the expense of our Musical Director and ask kindly for a donation to the Choir. So, if you would like a choral contribution to one of these types of services, please contact us for details.
Please be sure to note that this year’s traditional Carol Service at Privett Church will be held on Saturday 23 December – this is a change from the norm, but will be wonderfully festive so close to Christmas!
